Saturday, April 8 at In Bocca Al Lupo in Glover Park (7:30 to 10:00)
(2400 Wisconsin Ave, NW; 202-750-7939) The great people behind the Chevy Chase Italian favorite I'm Eddie Cano, have opened a great new restaurant in Glover Park, not far from the National Cathedral. As you can see from this article, they are serious about their Roman-style pizza. In addition to pizza, there's a wide range of Italian specialties, and a few of the neighborhood favorites have been brought down from Chevy Chase (like the addictive fried zucchini). Best of all, they have built a little stage, and they are now hosting local music! We played our first show there in January, and it was quite a scene. We'll try to top it in April. We have at least one drummer joining us, a first-timer named Alexey. He's never played with us before, not even a rehearsal, so it should be interesting. Also, I just heard that our original drummer Lex O'brien is in town, and we'll try to get him to join for a song or two. And Franklin says he might show up with his trumpet. Make reservations now! If there's a gap in available reservations (like from 7:30 to 8:00), don't worry about that. The restaurant does that so that a massive crowd doesn't all show up at once and overwhelm the staff right at the beginning of our set. We'll probably play two sets starting around 7:30 and 9:00ish. So make reservations for 15 to 30 minutes before one of these two sets to ensure you are settled before the music starts. And be sure to ask to sit near the band so you are in the front part of the restaurant with good sight lines. See you there!
